For an organization to provide quality services, the person served are active participants in the planning, prioritization, implementation, and ongoing evaluation of the services offered. A commitment to quality and the involvement of the persons served span the entire time that the persons served are involved with the organization.
The service planning process is individualized, establishing goals and objectives that incorporate the unique strengths, needs, abilities, and preferences of the persons served. The persons served have the opportunity to transition easily through a system of care. Assessment data may be gathered through various means, including face-to-face contact or other external resources.
The Supportive Choices Program encompasses two services: a Medicaid supported service called Community Alternative Program (CAP), and a Supported Living program which includes assisting individuals living in their own home/apartment.
CAP is designed to train individuals, one-on-one, in adult daily living skills. Our CAP program encompasses Home and Community Support, Residential Support and Supported Employment (work skills). All of these services are designed to help the individual excel in becoming self-sufficient. The program is open to those individuals with CAP authorizations from Medicaid.
Our Supported Living program assists individuals, with developed skills, in locating their own homes. Support is provided to enable them to maintain stability and independence. A Supportive Choices staff works with these individuals through various funding streams on an “as needed” basis to help with money management, meal planning, grocery shopping, health care, access to community services and activities, and any other areas of need.
